As I’m sure many of you know by now, The Land Connection was given the opportunity to be a guest instagrammer on the Farmers’ Market Coalition’s account for the past two weeks. It was quite the privilege to be able to share our market’s story with such a large audience, and get feedback and support from around the country.

As the executive director of The Land Connection I do a lot of different things like writing grants and reports, developing our budget, working with our great team on programming, and going to a lot of meetings. So when I get caught up in the day to day operations, the things that are not always super inspiring, I go back and read our mission statement.

What should be our new season's resolution?

Ah, the holidays. Chestnuts, crackling fireplaces, big meals and tasty treats with family and friends. And even though this year was a tad unusual (kids playing outside in the sun instead of rolling out snow angels, the feeling of the holiday season is always in the air.

But with that feeling comes the anticipation of what follows immediately afterwards - a brand new year.

Buttered Radishes and Polenta


There are a lot ways to continue eating locally grown foods in the winter in the Midwest--you can even make a beautiful, brightly colored meal in January. Cornmeal can be prepared by boiling it in water to make either a soft or firm polenta dish. I personally love to make a firm polenta and then to top it with buttered vegetables.


1 Cup corn meal

4 Cups water

1 Teaspoon salt
